Check out Arsenal Premier League 2021-22 - Fixtures and Match Schedules in Full, Key dates this season.
The Gunners finished eighth in the table last season and fans are expecting major improvements as Mikel Arteta continues his squad rebuild
Arsenal kick off their 2021-22 Premier League season with, on paper at least, a kind fixture against newly-promoted Brentford.
Things quickly become tricky for the Gunners, however, with their second match a home date against Champions League winners Chelsea.
It doesn't ease up after that either, as they then must travel to face Premier League champions Manchester City at the Etihad.

Arsenal team news
The north Londoners have a number of injury worries for Friday night’s game with several stars still in the treatment room.
Thomas Partey and Gabriel Magalhaes will both be absent against Brentford – with the former sustaining an ankle problem during the defeat to Chelsea.
Eddie Nketiah is also suffering from a similar problem from that game and the Premier League opener is thought to come too soon.
Brazilian Gabriel, 23, is still nursing a knee injury that kept him out of the Olympic Games in Tokyo.
The defender’s compatriot Gabriel Martinelli was part of that gold-medal winning squad and won’t link up with Arsenal for weeks yet.
Joe Willock is another player that is unlikely to be in the squad to face Brentford as his £20million-plus move to Newcastle edged closer.
But more positively, there could be competitive debuts for new signings Ben White and Albert Lokonga – both of whom started against Spurs.
Bukayo Saka is set to feature as well after he made his Arsenal return as a late substitute on Sunday.
